PIMBA CROWNS 2013 CHAMPIONS!PIMBA is proud to congratulate EACH of the 16 participating member bands that participated in its 2013 Championships at Gateway HS on Saturday, November 2.
With temperatures throughout the event in the mid 40’s and (yet another) rain delay in the middle of the first segment, the bands displaced incredible perseverance in their performances before the equally tenacious, extremely supportive audiences.
PIMBA thanks the Gateway Band Parents and director Bob Read for their organization and tremendous efforts throughout the day that enabled them to meet both the expected and unexpected challenges as they arose.

PIMBA presents its 2013 Class Champions:
Class A: Blackhawk
